From the trip

Yes, the pinecones and flowers from my trip have been lying around wondering what to do for more than a month now, until they were called in to decorate a Sharyn Sowell cut-out in an IKEA frame. I love the see-through effects I can create with frames with 2 clear plastic panels.

If you think the dried flower is pretty, just have a look at its friend here growing on the railway track in my photo below. This flower enchanted me while I was taking a walk by myself in a quieter area of Salzburg. Doesn’t it look like a snowflake? The lighting at sunset lends it an even more transcendent, magical quality. This flower made my day 🙂

The pinecones I handpicked while walking to Murren from Lauterbrunnen (Switzerland).

Inspiration Monday: Pretty Swiss houses

I’ve just come back from Europe and in this month there, I’ve seen so many beautiful houses which inspire me to make my own house as beautiful. It’s unlikely that I can have the wood carved balconies and windows in the Swiss countryside, or even a lace curtain, but there are some tips I picked up. And I love that the concept is so simple and eco-friendly– just make do with what you have!

Twigs, twine…

The plentiful pine cones you see on your way home…

Or just paper, but you already knew that 🙂
